Haneul Lee (b. 1994, Seoul, South Korea) uses photography as an interface for exploring various modes of relationships between herself and others. Her works are often inspired by the subtle insecurities arising during her interactions with strangers, such as “Strangers”, whereby she documented about 400 people and subsequently a new project “Boomers”. She is intrigued by how our transition into the digital era has impacted photography and is constantly studying linkages between images and the world we live in.
She received her BFA in Photography from Kyungil University in Daegu in 2017 and subsequently an MA in Photography from Hong-ik University’s Faculty of Design in Seoul in 2021.
